2015 Inferno D.O.C.G ‘Uì’

$75.00

” Ui “
This Bold Inferno D.O.C.G (made with 100% Nebbiolo Grapes) from the Valtellina Superiore region (Alps) of Lombardy in North Italy is one of our most awarded wines.

This drop is an intense red colour, with purple reflections and gifts a full aroma of marasca cherry mixed with vanilla and cloves. Strong, full bodied and intense taste.

Aged for 24 months in French oak, beautiful silky notes of spice and oak come through on the palate and nose. A truly impressive red wine from Rivetti and Lauro, both delicious to enjoy now but will age beautifully (maybe chuck one in your cellar?)

Powerful. Pleasurable to the drinker. The Nebbiolo grape, but not as you’ve ever tried before.

Description

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

There’s a reason why this wine is so highly regarded, and why it’s brought in yearly, international wine awards in the last decade. It’s entirely a strong, full flavoured wine with a long finish.

 

Wines with such presence, such as this Inferno D.O.C.G. from Rivetti & Lauro, can definitely be enjoyed outside of a formal meal setting, with rich cheeses, dried fruits and good quality pâté.

 

However, every great Italian wine ‘sings’ when enjoyed with a meal, and for this wine, the earthy and rich qualities of game meat such as venison, duck, pheasant, wild boar or even kangaroo are well paired to meet this wine’s powerful taste.

 

The great news is, rich sauces or stews will be enhanced by this delicious drop, so don’t worry about eating light if you want to crack open a bottle.

 

My personal favourite? Try this with rich kangaroo stew, garlic potato mash, and charcoal roasted vegetables.

The Winery

The Rivetti & Lauro winery originates from the traditional wine making of the mountains of Lombardy In North Italy. The vineyards of Valtellina tell us centuries of history and tradition. They are the largest terraced wine-growing area in the Italian mountains. A place where it is produced Nebbiolo, a great vine for a wine of noble and extraordinary quality.

 

Founded by three professionals whose dream to use the famous Nebbiolo grape in their region of Lombardia, Rivetti & Lauro employs modern techniques in their growth of grapes and wine production; organic and biodynamic, in harmony with the mountain environment.

 

Rivetti & Lauro only makes manual vintages, collecting the best grapes into boxes by hand. After the careful work of selection, the grape is vinificated into small tanks and then refined into French oak barrels, tonneaux and barriques. In their wine it is possible to find the scent and characteristic of their beloved territory.

 

The territory of their winery is in Lombardy, next to the border of Switzerland and by the sides of Lake Como. The commercial and cellar activities are house in the centre of the historic North Italian town of Tirano, within ‘The Palace of Torelli’.

 

The vineyards are at different altitudes in the areas of Sassella, Inferno, Vagella and the surroundings of Tirano. To each vine, its own distinct wine is produced.
